Ever study so much your head hurts? That's what I feel like right now. One month to go until I take my anesthesiology boards and I'm really trying to strike the perfect family/work/study balance, but I've been studying all day and need a break... Hubby and toddler are napping so I'm going to reminisce on the wonderfulness that was last weekend!
Last weekend was quite eventful. Thursday, Jonathon and I had a romantic pre-30th birthday dinner at a nice restaurant downtown. Friday I turned 30 and had a low key birthday dinner with the family at my favorite restaurant Nantucket Grille. Saturday I "graduated" from Duke's Anesthesiology Residency and Sunday had a Birthday BBQ at Pullen Park.
Having my parents and siblings around for almost a week was so nice. Truly God has blessed me with an amazing family! I am currently having withdrawals and this past week poor Abby kept asking "where everybody go, mommy?" Bless her heart. She will get more of her loud and crazy African side in two weeks since she will be spending a month in Houston with the grandparents while I ramp up my board studying.

|So thankful to our former cleaning lady turned great friend for helping me last minute and babysitting Abby and Ekata so the adults could all go to my graduation reception!|
|Sister, Sister. Turn up, Turn up! Even though I have to make up my 6 week maternity leave I still enjoyed the graduation reception. August 11 I will officially be done with residency!|
|I'm telling you the Ohen Family is a fit family. Dad and big sister returning after their morning jog.|
|Pullen Park for my birthday last year and for my birthday this year. We love it so much we will be returning to celebrate my birthday there again next year!|
|Ekata and Abby had so much fun with all the Pullen Park amusements, from the playground to the carousel to the train and the boats. These precious girls had a blast!|
|My little family. Can't believe I'm no longer in my twenties, but I thank God for all his blessings in my life!|

|Seriously we are a good looking bunch of siblings!|
|And last but not least I accomplished my goal of loosing 30 pounds by my 30th birthday!|
